star this property answer text <p>In June 2018 we agreed the Agenda for Change three year pay and contract reform deal which will see nearly one million National Health Service workers benefit over three years.</p><p>The deal gave all staff, including nurses in all pay bands, a pay rise of at least 3% for 2018/19. Over the course of the three years, nurses at the top of their pay band will receive a total pay increase of 6.5% and those below the top of their pay band, due to reforms to the pay structure (higher starting pay and fewer pay points), will see pay rises of between 9% and 29%.</p><p>The basic pay for a newly qualified nurse will rise from £22,128 to £24,907 over the three years.</p><p>In addition to basic pay, nurses are paid for working unsocial hours and an additional allowance if they work in and around London. The average earnings of a qualified nurse as at December 2018 was £32,280.</p><p>The deal was negotiated and agreed with the NHS trade unions and supported by the independent NHS Pay Review Body.</p>
